The shop has been dismantled for far too long. My weekend plan includes shop time. Specifically trimming and mounting the lower drywall segments along the north wall. The east / door wall segment needs to have the blow in insulation, well blown in. Once all buttoned up, and the drywall taped / mudded and at least one if not two coats of paint, the following has to take place. #1. Clean, clean clean. Get everything staged to install and move. #2. Install the french cleat system, and tool...
With all the small wire laid, I could finally run the last bit of large 2/0 wire from the Generac 200Amp Panel, into the inside House 100Amp Panel. It also needed to be routed under the concrete walkway. I spoiled it out and into the Generac Panel first, then pulled, measured, cut and re-ran it from there. The new panel is going to be located in the laundry room as it cannot go where the old was is. (Which is in the closet and is against code…and very unsafe anyway!) ...
Yesterday, I was able to finish dealing with the dowels in this project. Attaching the rails to the crib end parts was not a challenging as assembling the rails. The photo below is of the crib sitting on the side bench allowing the glue to set and dry. Next on the project list is to build the drawer. I have not had a lot of success in making drawers in the past, so I’m trying very hard to take it slow and get it right.
As the sun begins to illuminate the morning sky, I look out and notice that once again the snow is gently falling on us here in Nova Scotia. This time is isn’t the windy, violent type of snowfall that occurred the other day, but rather the soft, large flakes that gently float to the ground. It is getting lighter out, and I can see that already several fresh inches of snow have accumulated on the ground. As yesterday things were all cleared up from the weekend storm and once again th...
Bought this also. Spent a few days fixing runners and sanding off old paint.
I have had alot of folks how do I make the cedar birdhouses. These are really easy and hopefully these pics will help. As they say, a pic is worth 1000 words, and Im not much on typing. LOL If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask. Start with a shorter piece of log, whatever type you want to use will work. I do ALOT of cedar, as I have LOTS of it on my farm, it last a really long time, and its easy to turn. Did I mention, its free, which happens to be my favorite price. ...
When it came to making wooden wedges, my efforts were always hit and miss, however because hopefully, in the New Year sometime, we will finally be in the position to buy our own place, and one that needs a bit of work, I thought I had better start getting prepared. One of the things I will need, will be shims for putting in door frames, I have to be honest when it comes to finding tools or accessories you need, here in Colombia, it is very hit and miss. The reason I keep being given is,...
Here is a quick teaser of my latest ongoing project… At least two of them need to be completed by the first week of January (birthday present)
A few (OK, many) months ago when I should have been finishing my workbench I got the idea that it would be great to build a light table that would double as a drafting table. When I was a kid I loved to tape a piece of paper onto a window and trace pictures, it was like a magic drawing superpower. Now it’s going to be used for designing furniture and more importantly- stained glass. When you only work in the evenings and you have to hold up the glass to the one-incandescent-light-bul...
After 30 years of service, it was time to replace the top of my workmate. I had some approximately 8 inch melamine from left over from previous project and figured this would be a good replacement. I used the old tops as a template to place the holes for the new tops. One side done!! I bolted the second top on thinking how awesome it will be to have a much larger top. Until I learned about this critical measurement. The handles won’t turn! So I unbolted placed...
